Cleaner waterin your village and around
Sparsely populated areas are the third largest source of diffuse nutrient loads into the Baltic Sea. As EU legislation aims to improve the status of the water bodies in the EU, the main challenge of the project is to find the most cost‐effective and environmentally friendly wastewater treatment solutions for sparsely populated area households unconnected to urban wastewater plants, as such solutions will bring the wastewater emissions into the Baltic Sea into compliance with the levels set forth in upcoming EU water legislation.
The main objective is to help households avoid unnecessary investments and operating costs when shifting to improved wastewater treatment, and thus to encourage them to implement the new treatment systems. The project will be conducted in pilot villages where optimal technological solutions will be built up for the households. In this project the social, economic and environmental assessments will be conducted before and after the changes are made. The aim is to find out the best technological solutions for decreasing the emissions.
VillageWaters suggest most effective wastewater treatment solutions in scattered dwellings households, which use their own, independently operated water purification systems.
Environmentally oriented families and homeowners, who live in scattered dwellings areas, where connecting to larger wastewater plants is not option because rural distances.
